  • “Children with dyslexia and or processing issues learn much better when they use a program with an exciting visual component. Silver Moon Spelling Rules offers a format that is vibrant, colorful and fun, making it easier for these students to remember what they’re learning. The lessons are ideal in length and I really like the way they are scripted in an easy to understand format. The program offers quick, simple videos that show the parent/teacher how to teach the each concept. The supplemental flashcards make learning fun and allow the student an extra opportunity to put the rules into practice. As a dyslexia therapist, I highly recommend, Silver Moon Spelling Rules for any student who is struggling with spelling.”

Reading/Spelling Strategies

Schwa can be intimidating to teach, but it doesn't have to be! Have a listen while Kate and Kelly discuss the often elusive schwa.
Kate and Kelly demonstrate how to reinforce the "Extra Exam" spelling rule (spelling with EX) using a treasure hunt game. Treasure Hunt is a game that can be played remotely or in person and can be adapted for different concepts.
Kate demonstrates techniques to help struggling spellers with one-syllable words and multi-syllable words.
Kelly and Kelly briefly teach a moment in how to use Visual Strategies to differentiate between the letters b, p, and d for students.
This video demonstrates the "Touch & Say" reading strategy. This strategy enables students to sound words out so they don't have to guess at words while reading. Guessing can be a very difficult habit to break. Also demonstrated is the use of a reading guide to assist students with tracking.
It’s important to emphasize that there are two common ways to spell /k/ at the end of a word: CK and K. In order to know which to use, the speller must look at the letter right before the /k/ sound. Then, insert a CK if it’s a short vowel and K if it’s not.
Let’s chat about the challenge of matching the correct spelling for /ch/ when you have a bunch of ways to spell it. It really is a cinch if you ditch the guessing and snatch the rule from this catch-y vlog! Visit this link to follow along and to find free downloads to practice with your students!
Silver Moon® Spelling Rules offers two witty and creative rules to help when spelling the /k/ sound at the beginning of words.
Silver Moon® Spelling Rules offers a new twist on the FLOSS spelling rule! Kate & I discuss why I've given this rule a fresh name & face, how the rule works & share 3 activity pages we've produced for the Sam Loves Fried Zucchini rule!
The Cricket Caper game reinforces learning from lesson 12 in Set 1.  As students play they read multisyllabic words and use our rules to determine how to spell the /k/ sound in the middle of words.
Kate and Kelly go over a new game to help with the "doubling rule". Check out this demonstration and more at
